Yesterday we received a visit from Stefan Tschampel and his wife from Colombia. Mr Tschampel manages a farm in the coastal area of Colombia where he - in addition to the production of wood on a large scale - keeps 2.000 cattle. Due to the tropical climate prevailing in this region his herd consists of crossbred Brahman x Fleckvieh animals. All calves are sold for breeding purposes. Thanks to the careful selection of German Fleckvieh bulls and the resulting high quality of the breeding products, the Tschampels have a solid buyer base for their animals in Colombia. Now Mr. Tschampel is looking for new German Fleckvieh genetics for his herd.
Together with the centre vet of RBW, Roland Halblaub and his wife we visited the Fleckvieh farm of the Keller family in Allmendingen. The excellent quality of the animals on the farm convinced Mr. Tschampel once again that he made a good choice with using German Fleckvieh Genetics.
We would like to thank Mr. Keller for giving our guest an insight into his business and for showing us some of his best cows.
